Panhard 178

The Panhard 178 (official designation Auto-Mitrailleuse de Découverte (AMD) Panhard model 1935, internal project number 178) was a four-wheel drive armoured reconnaissance vehicle designed for the French Army and developed by the Panhard company before the Second World War. Designed for a crew of four, it was equipped with a 25mm cannon and a 7.5mm machine gun. After the Armistice of Compiègne in 1940, about 200 of these vehicles were captured by the German Wehrmacht and taken over and used under the name Pz.späh.204 (f) (Panzerspähwagen P204 (f)). After the war, a revised version was produced as the Panhard 178B.


Because it's important to us!

At Heller, we are constantly working to produce our products as sustainable as possible. In recent years, we have therefore taken many measures to increase resource efficiency as much as possible.

Recycled plastic

Since 2023, we have been producing all Heller model kits with recycled plastic. This gives existing plastic a new life in a great kit while maintaining the same quality.

No bags and film

Instead of packing our sprues in plastic bags, we use tissue paper to transport all components in a clean, protected and environmentally friendly way. Thanks to our seal closure, we do not need shrink film. This also significantly increases the recyclability of our packaging.

Oldies but Goldies

We are proud of our large archive of injection moulds. That is why we rework, repair and improve existing moulds instead of throwing them away. Great models are preserved and at the same time a lot of energy and material is saved. That's why we proudly display the year of manufacture of our moulds and the year of the last general overhaul clearly on every product box.
